A little bit about us…

Looking for a nanny and nanny share (that we would prefer to host in our home) for our 1 year old girl—hoping to start with a nanny in July 2023 M-F 8:30-5. Ideally, our fit would be someone who becomes part of our family and will grow as our daughter grows. We would love someone reliable, energetic, professional, and proactive. Our ideal nanny would help with naps, feeding our daughter, doing meal prep for her, engaging her in developmentally appropriate play, talking with her, reading to her, taking her outside when the weather is nice, cleaning up after her (her bottles, dishes, and play areas), and doing her laundry. We look forward to hearing from you!

A little bit about us…

Looking for care for my two children to help facilitate distance learning through the week and helping prepare simple meals (breakfast, snacks, lunch). My oldest is a rising sixth grader and my youngest is starting Kindergarten.

My youngest has celiac disease, which will require some vigilance with reference to food.

I strongly prefer someone who has had experience with younger children and is taking the proper precautions to avoid Covid.

My youngest loves dinosaurs and super heroes, likes puzzles and playing with Legos.

My oldest is very tech- savvy and enjoys video games.

Please reach out if this sounds like a position that may interest you. I'd love to hear about you and get a sense of your personality.

The position will start when school does, but I may be able to hire someone sooner.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
